GT Helion Comp 27.5 Mountain Bike - 2015. With the Helion series, GT has set out to do the impossible: create one bike that will make every rider happy. To that end, the Helion features 27.5 wheels for superior roll-over power without sacrificing acceleration. Keeping the ride smooth and in control is 110 mm of travel in the frame and fork to keep things balanced which combine with a slack head and seat tube angle to create a bike that will stay glued to the trail no matter the terrain. The 6061-T6 hydroformed aluminum frame keeps things lightweight while insuring that you'll have the durability to keep riding for years. The Helion Comp starts by plugging an X-Fusion 02 RL shock into the frame and running a remote to the handlebar so you can lock it out on the fly. The Raidon XC RL-R 27.5 Fork is also running a remote lockout so after you ride to the trailhead, you can unlock all 110mm of travel without moving your hands or slowing down. Should you need to slow down, speed control is handled by Shimano BR-M355 Hydraulic brakes actuating over 180mm centerlock rotors. This pairs well with the Shimano Alivio/SLX 3x9 drivetrain. The wheels feature Alex rims and WTB BeeLine 27.5x2.2 tires is a snap. GT's signature lock-on grips and 740mm wide bars put stable control right in your hands. This drivetrain could not be more dialed. Considering all of the bikes on the market that could make up your stable, there is no bike quite like the GT Helion Comp. Featuring the perfect balance between weight, comfort, style, and durability at an unbeatable price, the Helion will put a smile on your face as you eat up singletrack for years to come.
